This school is great. I have a soon to be 3rd grader and soon to be sixth grader, both love their teachers and the administration there is truly elite. Truly one of the best schools in Chicago.

I have a 4th grader, 1st grader and pre-K and i love this school teachers are very involved. Even though the school is over crowded the teachers always make sure they help students and parents whenever it is needed. working at a daycare with kids from nearby schools you can tell the difference in academics by the homework and knowledge of the students.

This is a downright horrbile school. My niece just graduated from here and hated every day coming to school. Gossiping teachers, horrible lunches, hot and humid classrooms, bathrooms with no soap, no hot water. I would not recommend this school.

All Chicago Public Schools should be as organized and productive as Addams Elementary. Not only does my granddaughter love going here but so do all of her classmates. They love their principal, who really strives to put them first and makes every effort to accommodate staff's needs. The school social worker, with everyone's help, including the principal's, manages to do a multitude of on-going after school activities that are productive for all grade levels and purposes. For example, the toddler of an employee was diagnosed with terminal cancer. The social worker organized and raised, with the community's cooperation, over $15,000 for the little girl's medical expenses, etc. The school's computer technician's band provided the free entertainment for this event. During the school day,this techie is highly indispensable while one of the school's history teachers re-enacts historical events, in costume and all. Teamwork, under a positive administrator, makes this all possible.
